CRW Rides are open to members and limited guests. Guests may only attend two rides before joining.
All riders (both Members and Guests) must REGISTER
If a rider has not pre-registered, that rider must do so online at the start of the ride.
The online registration will include a liability waiver that all riders will need to review and accept.
The online registration will also require all riders to review CRW’s Safety and COVID Guidelines and to agree to follow those guidelines on the ride.
Enjoy this delightful ride with a friendly group. We span Newton, Wellesley, Needham and Dover. There's a regular (25 miles), medium (33 miles) and long (47 miles). Back by popular demand: we'll have another pre-ride social gathering for anyone who wants to join; have a free coffee and donut on CRW's tab; see instructions and secret code phrase below. Parking is behind the condo building at 1172 Beacon St., Newton. There is free parking but please park in the back only. The ride is show-and-go, everyone at their own pace. You can use GPS or print a cue sheet ahead (no printed copies at the ride start).
9 a.m.- 945 a.m.: social time. Grab a free donut & coffee at Dunkin Donuts, 1148 Beacon St., Newton, and join us in the ride-start parking lot (per above). Dunkin's is next door to the ride start, a 1 minute walk. We're not meeting inside Dunkin's this time, as a COVID-safety precaution, but we'll hang out in the parking lot, which is quiet and has shade. Bring a folding chair if you'd like. At Dunkin's you can order anything up to $5 per person and the magic code is 'put it on Lisa's card.' (You can also try this code at the Four Seasons restaurant, though it might not work as well.)
9:45 a.m.-10 a.m.: safety talk, overview of the ride.
10 a.m.: Ride start, all distances.
